I am Sarah, a French mama, and I put together a little 'Kids Club' for local and international children on Koh Chang. It is located at the heart of a lush natural oasis by a lagoon (5 min from the beach!) and it is just a DREAM ENVIRONMENT for kids to explore, play and learn! It is a play-centered, Montessori-inspired play group with a purpose to learn naturally through play and individual exploration. Opening hours are monday to friday 9:30 to 12:30.
UPDATE in MAY and JULY, we are looking for "Worldschooling"/Traveling Families ONLY - either 2 parents and their child/children or 1 parent and his/her child/children. No single volunteer or couple please.
Koh Chang is a fantastic immersion into the fascinating thai lifestyle and exciting tourist scene. It is a good island to learn to slow down, be in touch with nature, and enjoy island life. Visitors will not enjoy the beautiful sceneries of tropical Koh Chang but also the peaceful thai lifestyle and vibrant international scene. The advantage of staying in the eco resort (as opposed to a private house) is that volunteers become part of a small and friendly community and meet both local thai people (lovely resort staff), but also tourists and other volunteers from all over the world. There is always someone around to have a chat with or play a game with. The resort also includes a beautiful restaurant, a big lush garden (with a kid playground, games, a zip line, cats, dogs, chickens/chicks + ducks/ducklings!) and a 5 min access to the sea.
It is one of the most beautiful, relaxing and inspiring places on the island.
Note: usually our volunteers extend their stay (they like it a lot here!!) ;)
Ideally, families coming to our kids' club can help us in two ways:
- parent(s) act as tutor(s)/supervisor(s) for kids every weekday mornings from 9:30 until 12:30. Of course they want to play freely but they also want to do crafts, art, sing, dance, play music, garden, and learn about everything and anything! They need a nurturing and caring person with the ability to make learning fun. The job also involves preparing the room before the kids' arrival (light cleaning, 20 min) and tidying/closing the room after (20 min). Very good/native command of English is preferred, good English is required.
- your child/children enjoy the kids' club and bring in their friendship!
Note: in high season the kids' club runs on 10-12 kids daily but in low season (April to October) there are usually only 2 or 3 kids, making this a very low key, relaxed 'homeschooling' atmosphere.
Both the Kids' Club and the Volunteers' House are located inside a beautiful eco-resort in a lush garden 5 min walk to the sea. Volunteering families are housed in a traditional Thai wood house on stilts. It consists of one large room (approx. 30 sq meters) with views of the nature and lagoon. It is an open-style house which means you feel more like ‘living in nature’ then living inside. (Note: the island is VERY SAFE). Toilet and bathroom are separate (30 sec away). Volunteers have access to a kitchen and get a 30% discount at the resort restaurant. They have access to the resort garden and facilities. Wifi is available throughout the resort (mostly excellent but with minor cuts now and then). We provide a basic food budget for the volunteering/tutoring parent and there are some opportunities to earn additional money doing afternoon babysitting/tutoring.
Visitors will have all afternoons and weekends off which means lots of time to visit the island, snorkel, dive, climb the mountains, relax at the beach, enjoy delicious thai food and get to make new friends - it's a very nice, relaxed and friendly island perfect for a break from city life.
